What is Angus Cloud age? The young actor is currently 23 years old.
Angus Cloud's life before acting
Before starring on the hit show, Cloud spent his high school years building sets and lighting for his school's plays. After graduation, he attended the prestigious Oakland School for the Arts, where his primary focus was technical theater.
This means that he was more interested in the work that goes on behind the scenes rather than in front of the camera. However, being behind the scenes was not his destiny.
Unlike many actors who actively audition and dream of making it big in Hollywood, Fez actor had no plans of joining the acting world. The opportunity landed on his lap on a random day during a walk in Manhattan.
Before Euphoria Fez had been living in Bushwick, New York, and he was working at a chicken and waffle restaurant. The Euphoria star had been living in New York for two years before he was offered this chance of a lifetime.
His very first audition became his big break. After landing the role of the 'dealer with a heart of gold,' Cloud packed his belongings and moved to Los Angeles to work on the series.
During the following eight months, he lived in multiple AirBnBs near the Culver City plot, where the show was being filmed.
His role on Euphoria
Fezco Euphoria star is not your average controlled substance dealer. In many TV shows, peddlers are shown to be heartless people who often threaten and kill those around them for the smallest mistakes or inconveniences.
However, Fez Euphoria is different. From the very first episode, we see that he cares about Rue, the 17-year-old main character and addict played by Zendaya.
Once Rue leaves rehab, she goes to him, and once she informs him that she does not intend to remain sober, he seems disappointed in her.
Angus Cloud and Zendaya scenes quickly became a fan favourite as they showed the vulnerability and soft side of Fezco.
A particular scene that moved fans was in season one, episode two, where Rue was forced to ingest the highly addictive Fentanyl by Fezco's supplier.
After Fez realized that Rue was in danger of sexual assault for failure to pay for the controlled substance, he paid off the man, and then spent the night dutifully taking care of her so that she would not die.
While Fez Euphoria scenes are not many, his fan base quickly grew with many people wanting to know more about his background and life story.
Angus Cloud Mac Miller rumours
If you have quietly wondered, 'Who does Angus Cloud look like?', the young TV star looks like the late Grammy-nominated rapper Mac Miller.
Is Angus Cloud related to Mac Miller? While many have speculated that the two might be related, Angus has refused to speak on the matter.
Some differences between Angus Cloud and Mac Miller are:
- Malcolm James McCormick, aka Mac Miller, was born in Pittsburgh’s Point Breeze neighborhood in 1992 to a photographer mother and an architect father. Cloud, on the other hand, is an Oakland native and his parents were university professors.
- To those who suspect that the two might be brothers, you are mistaken. Mac Miller had one older brother, Miller McCormick. They would often work together on the rapper's albums and their art covers. As for Angus Cloud siblings, the star has younger sisters.
The only similarity between the two stars is that they have Irish roots. In the second season premiere of the reality show Mac Miller and the Most Dope Family, the late rapper explored his Irish ancestry during a trip to Ireland.
As for Cloud, his parents are originally from Ireland.
Today, Angus Cloud has made a name for himself and is auditioning for more roles. Hopefully, his character Fezco shall be in the second season of Euphoria and fans will learn more about the dealer.
At the moment, however, Angus Cloud is sharpening his acting skills by taking an acting class taught by Shia LaBeouf. His star is shining bright, and he is undoubtedly one to look out for.
